Summer Street Party Promises to Be Bigger and Better Than Ever

| June 2022

Our annual Summer Street Party, in partnership with Chichester District Council, is happening in Chichester on Sunday 17 July from 10am – 4pm and it promises to be bigger than ever with the addition of the popular Cross Market and More.

Every corner of the city will come alive at this year’s Summer Street Party with live music, street entertainers, fashion shows, carousels, Morris dancing, traditional games, face painting and more!

We are absolutely delighted by how many of our city centre businesses are getting involved with special goodie bags being given away, delicious tasters and samples for party goers to try, exciting prize draws to enter, amazing demonstrations to enjoy and fabulous special offers you won’t want to miss!


On South Street look out for 50% off everything in store at Present Surprise and scrumptious tasters outside Lime Squeezy. In the Northern Quarter of the city Between the Lines, Lakeland, Robert Dyas and Phoenix Dining (Guildhall Street) are all bringing their business to the party. Meanwhile over in the Eastern Quarter, The Eastgate Inn is holding a real ale and gin festival, Giggling Squid and Hotel Chocolat will be offering free tasters, Katie Loxton will be giving away a free ice-cream with every purchase and Lush will be doing bath bomb making demos. The Sweet Jar are also taking part on the Cathedral Green and opposite Ecco Shoes has some fabulous goodie bags to giveaway and The West Street Deli (West Street) will also offer tasters of local cheeses and fresh pesto, plus 10% off everything all day including takeaways and drinks!


Discover the Crane Street Carnival for a fantastic vintage vibe with juggling, balloon modelling and live performances from Dawn’s Vintage Do. You can also enjoy alfresco ice cream sundaes from Rainbows Parlour, homemade lunches from Spires Bakery and craft beer from The Escapist. Not forgetting special hand and shoulder massages from city centre newcomers Beauty Secrets Spa.

There will also be more entertainment to be found over in St Martin’s. Led by The Hole in The Wall, there will be live music, performances, ice cream and more! At Draper’s Yard in The Hornet, The Chichester Fringe Festival will be putting on free entertainment and children’s acting activities.
